Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

La Plagne is a big place. Which bit of La Plagne?
I would recommend Christophe Roques, ESF, Belle Plagne.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Yes PG, a group of old fuddy-duddies have been skiing with Christophe for years. He has a wicked sense of humour, and a lovely way of imparting criticism and advice without denegration. He also has eyes in the back of his head.

Wonder if young Paul is set to follow in his Dad's footsteps. Was chatting to Paul at a race on Feb 5th - don't think the Super G was quite his bag, though!

Christophe says his eledest son (Paul? about 10?) is fine in training but lacks confidence on Race Day, so doesn't show his best. His younger son races too.

Paul's 11, a "benjamin" in race terms covering kids born in 92 and 93 . He had a couple of good results last year, but has been off the pace a little since last December. Nice lad. As I mentioned before, he trains with Hannah, but not often in the same group. Links to some of his results from this page http://scla.alpesprovence.net/benjamins.htm

Thinking of trying his Dad's guiding service at La Plagne when the weather's settled down a little.

PG, he is certainly a ski instructor; I don't know what Mountain Guide training he has. He still races. He has recently taken a sports trainers course and is thinking of branching out into rubgy training. His new "wife" works in Chambery in some central ESF office, but she used to be French junior slalom champion (sorry, I have forgotten her name, but Hannah might be interested to meet her).
